After 7 years on the road with major label country acts, guitarist Brad Sample has recorded his own project – making its live debut at The Back Corner 2/19/19.
Recorded with Grammy-nominated producer/engineer Bobby Holland (Maggie Rose/ Drake White, Kesha) at Pentavarit Studios in Nashville, TN, the album is a diverse mix of raw country blues with reverb-laden rock & roll that allows his signature guitar tone to shine.
“Brad is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, but we wanted some chemistry from other musicians too. Brad played guitar and drums, and we brought in equally incredible musicians for the rest,” says Holland. Those musicians include Kyle Whalum (bass player for Kelly Clarkson), Billy Justineau (keyboardist for Brothers Osborne), Scotty Murray on steel (guitarist for Anderson East), and American Idol alum Kendra Chantelle on background vocals. The production, recording, and mixing techniques were kept very raw and “hands off” as Holland describes it. “We didn’t do any programming. All real instruments in the hands of real players.”
